What Will ‘Emily in Paris’ Season 4 Be About?

Netflix has shared the following official synopsis about season four: “After the dramatic events of Camille and Gabriel’s misbegotten wedding, Emily is reeling: She has strong feelings for two men, but now Gabriel’s expecting a baby with his ex, and Alfie’s worst fears about her and Gabriel have been confirmed. At work, Sylvie is forced to confront a thorny dilemma from her past for the sake of her marriage, and the Agence Grateau team navigates personnel shakeups. Mindy and the band prepare for Eurovision, but when funds run dry, they’re forced to get thrifty. Emily and Gabriel’s chemistry is undeniable as they work together towards a Michelin star, but two big secrets threaten to undo everything they’ve dreamed of.”

And in a video announcing the show’s season four premiere dates, Lily Collins and the rest of the cast teased the new season by sharing three words they think would describe the episodes.


Collins previously shared a video with viewers during Netflix’s TUDUM fan event over the summer, where she teased a little bit about what people can expect, primarily “answers” for all the big cliffhangers from season three. Will Emily and Gabriel finally get together? Is Alfie still heartbroken? Will Gabriel get his Michelin star? Will Mindy and the band go to Eurovision?

“It’s safe to say we ended on a dramatic note last season, and surprise! It does not end there,” she said in the video, adding, “What I can tell is we have more fun, more fashion and, of course, more drama in store for you all. Emily is going to have to decide if everything she’s ever wanted is really what she needs, and while Emily’s heart will always remain true to Paris, her life takes some unexpected twists this season. Don’t be surprised to find her on a Roman holiday.”


In interviews following the end of season three, Star teased a few more things he’d want to explore further in the next season, like Camille and Sofia’s relationship. There’s also a lot of uncertainty in the air with Mindy and Nicolas (Paul Forman). Where does she stand with Benoit (Kevin Dias)?

“Nicolas is a very smart character, but I think he is also a tricky guy,” the creator told TV Guide. “I think he represents a little bit of the Mindy who used to be, who she is very comfortable with. Benoit is a bit more of her artistic soul, and I think there is a real struggle. She has both sides of her competing for her priority.”

Star also explained that season four is going to be even more about navigating complicated personal and work relationships than it has been thus far. The season three finale sort of blew things up for Alfie, Gabirel, Camille and Emily, all of whom work together in some capacity, live in the same area and are intertwined in each other’s lives in more ways than one.

As the show has expanded from one point of view (Emily’s) to more of an ensemble, the showrunner told Glamour he foresees audiences getting to know even more about Sylvie and other characters than they do at this point. “From the beginning, she’s a character that doesn’t want to be known,” he explained to the magazine about the marketing exec. “You see the stories from different points of view. I think now that we see the world a little bit from Sylvie’s point of view, we’ll learn more about Sylvie.”

And while Star doesn’t exactly know how much longer he wants the show to go, he has a few different ideas for how it could end, but he’s not tied to any one possible final storyline.

“As the show has evolved, so does your idea of where the characters are going,” he said. “They create their own momentum when you introduce new characters. The characters take on lives of their own, as they take you in unexpected direction. So, I don’t like to have hard and fast ideas about where it must end because I feel like, as in life, the characters will lead you in different directions.”
